On a nice day the views are amazing from that ridge. Tons of lines to be had on both north facing and south facing slopes- will see which ones are less icy:)

This trip was added to the calendar to split the waitlist from the beginner friendly trip on the same date: intermediate and advanced skiers only!

Please indicate your touring experience, skiing ability, avi training, general fitness, and if you have a winter-ready vehicle and can drive.

All participants are expected to be able to ski blue runs, off piste, under any conditions (the backcountry is not a place to learn downhill skiing). If Mt Baker has the best conditions then I require that everyone be able to ski black runs under any conditions.

This trip will be canceled or re- scheduled at the leaders discretion if the avi risk is too high or conditions are not suitable.

Required Items to Bring:
Skis or splitboard, skins, avi gear, headlamp, food, water, extra clothes, first aid kit.

Passport or Nexus card.

Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.
Two-way personal radio with GMRS channels.

How to Get There:
